Power BI currently has no way to print tiles where the data scrolls out of the current view (Examples would be Horizontal Bar Charts and Matrix views with say 800 lines or rows of data). You can only print what is currently on screen, manually scroll down, print again, repeat, etc. Very laborious. I have a client who would like to easily print out all the rows. This leads into a second issue with Power BI.
Im waiting also for a solution on this issue. Any news?

Could someone please let me know whether this printing issue would be solved soon? Any ideas or updated versions out there soon? Thank you, Jan Vesely
First comment and question from my users:
Wow! This is really nice ... now, How can I print this report?

This feature would be a tremendous time saver for myself and all my users.
This would be a fabulous feature to Power BI.
Basically what we wanted from the print options (but all we got was a set of screen grabs wrapped in a pdf).

Power BI needs to be able to print all the data in a list or matrix. Power BI is fine for looking at the overall data or finding a specific record on a giant list via filters. But when you need to print the entire list, it's simply inadequate in its current state. The workarounds are timeconsuming and not practical.
I would be very happy if this was put into Power BI.
This will stop deployment of the tool.
This is such a deal breaker for Power BI. It should be integrated from the beginning.
Current functionality is just not enough. ALL my customers ask me directly; ‘how do I print’?
And as I often use a matrix the data can easily be larger then just one page.
I have a table with too many rows that come out of view and need to print all the view. I tried expanding the table and the page to view them all, but I reached the limit of the page height and still cannot view all of the rows in the page. The way around it is to scroll the page to the new view and print individually, but for my clients that's not an efficient method. Please consider adding more printing options.

This is a must for any BI tool
In my opinion, this can work:
- As pivot table in excel, you cannot place elements in the bottom of the table so it can grow down as needed
- Or defining which elements belong to a "header section" (which must be repeated in all the pages) and which elements belong to a "detail section"
Please let us know if you are going to move forward with this.
